I always try to paint a special piece for the kind families who host me while I am painting at a festival. Its so comforting to come back to a home instead of a hotel room after a long day in the field. Their hospitality is much appreciated by all of the traveling artists! I painted this small house portrait to thank my hosts at the Wayne Plein Air Festival.

Nina and Phoebe – Pastel Portrait

Pastel pet portrait painting      8  inches x 10 inches    SOLD
Please contact me if you are interested in similar artwork.

Right before I left for the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival, I received an emergency request. A woman called me and explained that her mother had just lost a treasured pet. She wanted to know if I could do a portrait of her mom’s two Goldens. With my love of pups, it was a plea I could not refuse. I painted this small pastel dog portrait for her in hopes that it will bring her special memories of her faithful friends.

Thank you my friend, Peggy Brewer, for passing this referral on to me! If you have a special image you would like painted, please contact me! You can view some of my previous commissions at www.jillwagnerart.com/commissions

I shot a few photos of the work in progress in case you’re interested…

The last of my paintings from the Wayne Plein Air Festival. I just found out yesterday that this piece sold, which makes me very happy. ;o)

You can see a great video that shows the painters, events and awards of the festival here. Wayne has really strong festival support from their community and it shows in everything they do. Totally first class. I really hope I will be juried in again next year!!

Oy. Another crummy photograph shot right after I painted an old farm for the Wayne Plein Air Festival. The photo below is actually a much better representation of the piece while it was still on my easel. I know some of my artist friends think I’m a little crazy to go on these plein air excursions (heck, my husband thinks I’m INSANE), but I just LOVE doing it. I guess we all have our vices…   ;o)

Morning Light – Oil Painting

One magical morning on the outskirts of Wayne, I spotted this old farmhouse and trees that were silhouetted by the bright morning sun rising over the distant fields. I threw the car into reverse and backed into an old farm stand where I could paint from the back of my trunk. The light changes very dramatically early in the morning and late in the afternoon, so I had to work quickly to catch that bright light that intoxicated me at first sight. When I’m painting outdoors I sometimes lose track of the very thing that attracted me to a specific scene. I was really happy with this piece because I think it accurately captured my original vision.

This and my 12 other paintings will be on exhibit at the Wayne Plein Air Festival until June 25th. Stop by and the Wayne Art Center in Pennsylvania to check them out if you have a chance! You can see all of the winners here.
